Less than 15 minutes from Marine Atlantic ferry docks. Motel room was very clean and very comfortable. Welcoming staff at the office desk (may have even been the owner). Would definitely recommend and would certainly stay there again. Convenient restaurant next door.

We were looking for reasonable accommodation while spending four nights in Cape Breton. Found this gem, affordable, soooo clean and the bedding was washed and hung out on the line!!. Going to bed after a day out exploring was a joy, just to have the fresh smell to your bed gave you the best sleep ever, made it so good...

This Mote was an older style, but so well kept. From the moment we stepped in the host was welcoming. Advised us of shops and attractions in the area. Was accommodating with extra pillows, hair dryer and a kettle. The rooms were aired out with windows open on arrival, great concept, better than any stale air freshner spray, that lingers....

We travel a lot and was lost in the middle of the night before finding Kelly's. Lovely service and a great find. Rooms were clean and we had a very good sleep after a long day of travel. Would recommend for someone looking for a reasonably priced place in the area.

Kelly's was super clean and had large comfortable rooms. Very friendly staff and the price is reasonable. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful when questioned about the area. We were traveling by motorcycle for 30 days and this was one of the best motels we stayed in. Great restaurant next door and a lovely water view from our large motel window....

We came from Newfoundland on the ferry and stayed overnight before we continued our journey to the south shore to Nova Scotia. The service was very friendly, from the moment we made the reservation, to the moment we left. Any question we had and any help we needed were answered with a smile. Great value for money!

Enjoyed our stay here again this year. Nothing special except the friendly welcome and the convenient location near the Newfoundland ferry. Small fridge in room. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Great view too.

We stayed here one night on Aug 8, after crossing on the ferry from NL. It is an older motel, but the room was very clean, plush towels and comfy bed. The restaurant next door is open early for breakfast. The view is beautiful. The rate is reasonable. We had stayed here a few years ago on our return trip...

Very nice remodel of an older style motel. Rooms have fairly new beds, updated bathroom fixtures and a nice fresh coat of paint. Attention has been given to those things that are important to travelers, like super fluffy towels, expensive bed linen, comfy pillows that you rarely see in similar establishments. Wifi was great. The motel is just off the...

We were somewhat on a budget and in need of a place to stay overnight prior to the morning ferry run to Newfoundland. We are so happy that we found the Kelly's View Motel as it fit our needs perfectly. We are not hotel snobs so our main criteria is the place clean. It was spotless and very comfortable. After...
